Audit FileMaker Servers for Insecure Files

Recommended Posts

I would strongly recommend that all FileMaker Platform developers and FileMaker Server Admins audit all their servers for any hosted files with any of the following credentials:


  • Guest Account enabled and attached to the [Full Access] Privilege Set
  • A [Full Access] Account with no password
  • A [Full Access] Account with the password stored and using the File Options “Log In Using” feature.


Files with these credentials options are very vulnerable to attack and compromise.  They can be used as attack vectors to mount exploits against the server that hosts them as well as against other servers and those servers’ files.
